check your /etc/locale.gen . If you did not run locale-gen,
iso8859-1 does not appear on your terminal.

BTW, why do we have to edit our locale.gen ...
It seems that many users must edit for their environment.
To prepare 2 locale package, one is same as current locale
package, the other includes all locale data, is worth doing?
